More civilized and supple is the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Veraison Stagecoach Vineyard, a blend of 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Malbec and the rest smaller portions of Bordeaux varietals. The wine shows supple tannins, sweet blackberry and cassis fruit and is a much more near-term proposition for drinking than its sibling. It can be consumed now, or cellared for 20 or more years. This is a beauty.

 

 

Winemaker Notes

Opening with a mélange of blackberries, anise and cassis, this Cabernet Sauvignon is plush and textured, dominated by succulent ripe black cherry, boysenberry, roasted coffee and dark chocolate. Well-balanced, rounded tannins lead to a luxuriously long finish.

The 2013 vintage had plentiful winter rain followed by a warm spring, resulting in early bud break. A warm and occasionally hot summer continued to speed vine growth. A mildly warm fall and patience allowed for optimal hang time to achieve the complex flavors, ripeness, and power of a great vintage.

 

Pair with herb roasted prime rib and porcini mushroom tarts. Drink through 2035.
